The sec­ond half of her ca­reer was spent with the Coun­try Land and Busi­ness As­so­ci­a­tion (CLA), where she lob­bied gov­ern­ment at na­tional level on is­sues re­lat­ing to pub­lic rights of way and open ac­cess.

She then be­came Midlands di­rec­tor and led the re­gional team’s pol­icy and lob­by­ing ac­tiv­i­ties, en­gag­ing with MEPs, MPs and a wide se­lec­tion of com­mit­tees and boards.

Caro­line said: ‘I am priv­i­leged and hon­oured to be ap­pointed to this ex­cit­ing new role and I look for­ward to work­ing with the ex­pe­ri­enced staff team and BASC mem­bers to raise pub­lic aware­ness of the vi­tal and im­por­tant work that shoot­ing un­der­takes for rare habi­tats and species in the UK.’

Caro­line Bedell is poised for the new role.
